More Food, Less Fat

Scarfing 6 meals a day boosts energy, builds muscle, and sheds pounds. But what to eat? Here’s your quick ‘n’ easy guide
Some things are sadly predictable. Extra winter poundage, for instance. Or holiday binges. Or the 3 o’clock slump, which sags before you like a hammock every afternoon.
Here’s a happier prediction: Eat more often and you’ll avoid all of those problems. Spreading six smaller meals across your day operates on the simple principle of satisfaction. Frequent meals tame the slavering beast of hunger. The secret? Each mini meal should blend protein and fiber-rich complex carbohydrates. "Protein and fiber give you that feeling of satiety and keep you from feeling hungry," says Tara Geise, R.D., a nutritionist in private practice in Orlando and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association (ADA).
(just because it say’s "men’s health" doesn’t mean the female among the group can’t learn from this great article).

  1. Key thing is that each meal should not be the traditional "food coma" inducing meals like everyone is in the habit of eating. Myself included!! :) Z does this and seems to be pretty happy with it. She certainly does not get the insane like hunger at 3pm.Long live the Mojito!!! Long live the Mojito!!!
